A Scottish farming duo is celebrating 10 years of combining sustainable farming and social media; James Reid and Rosa Bevan have been using their online influence to highlight the possibilities of land use to young people in Scotland.
They do so while promoting permaculture ecosystems at Tap O’ Noth farm in Aberdeenshire.
The duo has more than 19,000 YouTube subscribers. On this platform, they share videos documenting farm life with the aim of inspiring budding farmers to make the most of Scottish land. The farm produces ecologically grown fruit and vegetables and is also home to chickens, geese and a small herd of dairy goats.
The couple generate most of their living from operating a Community Supported Agriculture vegetable box business, as well as focusing on agritourism in the form of farm tours and renting their shepherd’s hut. They also offer online permaculture consultancy and residential courses. Reid said: “We want to inspire people about the life they can lead if they look at land a little bit differently.
